Siasia gives NFF ultimatum over unpaid salary
Nigeria’s former U-23 coach Samson Siasia has told the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to pay him his five months outstanding salary within two weeks.
Siasia led Nigeria’s Dream Team VI to a bronze medal at Rio 2016 but told BBC Sport that he was yet to be paid five weeks after the Games ended.
“I have given them a two-week ultimatum to pay me or I will sit inside the NFF office in Abuja until I get paid,” Siasia told BBC Sport.
“The national team is preparing for a World Cup qualifier and to be honest my unhealthy distractions are the last thing they need right now.
“I’ve made it clear in my letter that my assistants and I should be paid the backlog owed because it’s inhuman.
“As head of our families we sacrificed everything for the country but the NFF refused to pay us – it’s not only heartless but wicked,” he said.
